Following the terror attack in Pulwama, few current and former Indian cricketers had asked India to boycott playing Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup in England. With many players asking India to boycott upcoming 2019 World Cup fixture, scheduled for June against Pakistan after the Pulwama attack, former Pakistani all-rounder Shahid Afridi said something which will boil every Indian’s blood.

Seems like Shahid Afridi found plenty of meaning in a tasteless reaction of Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan to a massacre that left 44 CRPF personnel martyred.

Imran Khan on Tuesday said Pakistan will have no other option but to retaliate if India wages war against it in the wake of the February 14 suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir that killed 44 CRPF troopers. Pakistan PM denied any role of his country in the February 14 Pulwama suicide attack.

Afridi took to Twitter and wrote, ‘Absolutely crystal & clear” while sharing the video of Government of Pakistan that showed Imran Khan speaking on the Pulwama incident.

“Without any proof they are putting all the blame onto Pakistan straight away. PM Imran Khan has once again spoken on this matter in a positive & clear way to explain that Pakistan wants to have good relations with not only India, but also Afghanistan, Iran & China,” Afridi was quoted as saying by a Pakistan journalist.

Here is what Imran Khan had said

“You (India) have blamed the Pakistan government without any evidence…If you have any evidence, we will act. It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian government that we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan,” Khan had said.

“What has Pakistan to gain from this? Why will Pakistan do this at a stage when it is moving towards stability,” said Imran Khan adding that “this is a Naya Pakistan with a new mindset. “If you think you will attack us and we will not think of retaliating…We will retaliate. We all know starting a war is in the hands of humans, where it will lead us only God knows. This issue should be solved through dialogue,” Khan added.

Earlier, IMG-Reliance had pulled their name back from the production of the ongoing PSL season 4. To this, Afridi said people find out their true friends during tough times and added that educated people don’t behave like that.

“You find out who your friends are at difficult times. What are they trying to show the world that they are educated? Educated people don’t behave in such a manner,” Afridi said.

At least 44 CRPF jawans were killed and dozens injured in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on the 14th of February.

A 22-year-old Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist Adil Ahmad Dar was identified as the suicide bomber who carried out the attack. Accused of one of the deadliest terrorist attacks the state has ever witnessed, Dar lived just 10 kilometres away from the attack spot in Gundibagh.
